Rummenigge: Bayern open to Gustavo sale

Bayern Munich will discuss terms with Wolfsburg over the sale of midfielder Luiz Gustavo, according to CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The 26-year-old, who joined the Bundesliga champions from Hoffenheim in 2011, is likely to face stiff competition for his place next season under Pep Guardiola.

As well as new signings Thiago Alcantara and Mario Goetze, the Brazilian will also see the likes of Javi Martinez and Bastian Schweinsteiger vying for a central midfield berth.

The player himself admitted recently he would consider leaving the Allianz Arena for regular first-team football and Rummenigge has now confirmed the club would also entertain the idea of a sale.

“If Wolfsburg agrees personal terms with Gustavo, we will then negotiate,” he told Kicker.

“If Luiz leaves the club, we will not buy another player.”

Gustavo made 36 appearances in all competitions last season under Jupp Heynckes as Bayern won the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal and the UEFA Champions League.

    As a Bayern fan, seeing this irks me to no end… Why sell a defensive mid after buying 2 offensive mids? Especially seeing how average Thiago played at CDM when Bayern played BvB. Luis is a million times better than Thiago at that position. This would be such a stupid move. I don’t understand how Bayern is run by such great former players and then make a decision like this one…
